$40 Million SuperLotto Plus® Jackpot Won in Albany!


SACRAMENTO – A massive win for a Bay Area California Lottery player. That’s because one ticket matched all six numbers in Saturday’s SuperLotto Plus draw to win the $40 million jackpot!

Here’s what we know right now – the lucky ticket was sold at Albany Hill Mini Mart, which is located at 800 San Pablo Avenue in Albany (Alameda County). The ticket matched the following six numbers: 21, 17, 44, 4, 37, and the Mega number 17. We will not know who the winner is until the prize is claimed.

Winners are strongly encouraged to sign the back of their tickets in ink, keep them in a safe place where they’ll remember and familiarize themselves with the Lottery’s Winner’s Handbook, which can be found here. Winners should also visit any of the nine Lottery District Offices during normal business hours as soon as possible. That includes convenient locations in Hayward and South San Francisco. And remember, you must have your original ticket when claiming any SuperLotto Plus prize, so be sure you don’t forget and leave it at the store!

SuperLotto Plus is California’s own in-state jackpot game. Players pick five numbers from 1 to 47 plus a Mega number from 1 to 27. The draw takes place at Lottery Headquarters in Sacramento on Wednesdays and Saturdays, right after draw entry closes at 7:45 p.m. PST. Tickets are $1 and can be purchased from any of the more than 22,000 California Lottery retailers or one of the more than 4,000 Lottery Lucky Retailers. You must be at least 18 years old to purchase a ticket, play, or claim a prize. Please visit the California Lottery’s SuperLotto Plus site for more information. 

SuperLotto Plus is a part of the Lottery’s continued effort to create more winners, and more importantly, earn more money for California public schools!

The California Lottery is a $6 billion enterprise based in Sacramento. It is one of the few state agencies that is a revenue generator, not accepting taxpayer dollars from the State’s General Fund. Its mission is to provide supplemental funding to California schools while simultaneously supporting local communities. In FY 2016-17, the Lottery created 83 new millionaires. Ninety-five cents of every dollar spent by our players goes back to local communities in the form of contributions to public schools and colleges, prizes and retail compensation. The California Lottery urges its customers to play responsibly and within their budgets. If you feel you have a gambling problem, or know someone who does, you can get help at 1-800-GAMBLER.
